ABSTRACT
Growing demands for the implementation of environmental rules in enterprises force these companies to look for solutions that are appropriate for their structure and market segment. Times, when companies were focused on maximizing their profits without building environmental policy are now history. Environmental policy of companies and their implementation in practice has become a benchmark for quality assessment of the company and its brands. Difficulty and complexity of solved issue represents a special framework for defining tasks and objectives which cannot be resolved by their own expert groups. This assumption creates platform for forming specialized clusters, which in interaction with the public and private sector creates competitive advantages in the market. Such networking is an important element in the development of professional background in the market and linking theory with practice in solving specific tasks in the field of environment.
